Thank you.

Using your ID, I have found it in another version of Chinery.

The [so-called] subspecies hibernica occurs in western Ireland and only on coastal cliffs in counties Cork and Kerry, so as this specimen was from Cambridge it's just a Yellow Shell. It's such a variable moth my personal view is that they aren't subspecies, just local forms (at best).
